Best described as a discreet “internal bath”, this detoxifying treatment involves a trained therapist using water to gently flush your colon via a disposable rectal tube. We use a closed system which is safe, customisable, and completely odour- and mess-free.
The process may sound a little, errr, intimidating, but our clients agree it’s a surefire way to feel lighter, gain more energy, and sleep more soundly.
Q. Who should consider colonic irrigation and why?
a. If you’ve ever struggled with bloating, constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, parasites, anxiety, stress, headaches, migraines, back pain, arthritis, depression, allergies, skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, or your diet is just a bit crap, colonic irrigation could help to relieve the toxic load on your body and increase your energy and feelings of wellbeing.
Q. What does “closed method” mean?
a. There are two types of colonic irrigation—open method and closed method. We only use the latter. We believe it is a superior approach in that it is performed by a trained professional who is there to talk you through the treatment step-by-step, and offer massage and advice. Importantly, it is also odour- and mess-free.
Q. What kind of training do you have?
Q. What can I expect during the treatment?
a. Once in the treatment room, you’ll remove your underwear and hop onto a treatment bed. Using a very small, disposable rectal tube, your therapist will gently infuse filtered water into your large intestine. You will experience several fills and releases of water. (Think of the tide of the ocean, gently ebbing and flowing.) A light massage can be applied to your abdomen to assist the process. You’ll also chat about what, um, comes out. When the treatment itself is over, you’ll have time alone to visit the bathroom. Depending on your body, the process can take anywhere from 25 to 45 minutes on the machine, and up to an hour in total.
Q. What are the benefits of colonic irrigation?
a. Many! A flatter stomach and clearer skin for one. You can expect to feel lighter, more vibrant and more well than you have in years, thanks to the removal of toxic waste material from your colon. Clients tell us they find relief from brain fog and anxiety, too.
Q. Why come to you?
a. Our founder Jacinta Chaffey is passionate about colonic irrigation and credits the practice with “saving her life”. As a salon, we are serious about offering this treatment in a safe, respectful environment and value your comfort and privacy.
